are saying your comments and bill clinton's difference made a show. >> i feel like a ref on this show. >> that's why you understand being paid well. more value. >> you get a lot of penalties. >> i do get a lot of penalties. be careful. you need to stay lady like. >> really. >> that's what todd akin told me. >> double flag. question for you. why are you the only one who can bring up todd akin? because i want to. >> well, there is a recent development. >> right. there wasn't one? i brought it up. go ahead. toss to sports. that's fine. that's a penalty. >> she's tough. >> wouldn't you like to go back to nice? >> no. >> it's beautiful. a lot cheaper. it's off-season. >> i have things to do. >> let's go to new york and, brian, what are you looking at? >> anything but the fiscal cliff right? i've been called a screaming conservative and raging liberal. i guess that means i'm doing something right. let's go to sports now. >> please. just do it. >> it is bipartisan. start with the nfl. ravens and browns last night. i couldn't watch the game because i agreed to come thon show this morning. uni
four years, given what he was handed in this, when you heard bill clinton say that, bill clinton has not said that before. >> i could have done better. you could have done better. i think anybody who wasn't ideologically driven could have done better. >> what would you have done? >> sorry? >> the meaningful steps. >> what wouldn't you have done. >> we need jobs so therefore -- and we need exports so therefore the first thing you do is have the nlrb attack the number one exporter in the country on really preposterous grounds, then you in effect start yelling at business and threatening business and then you get on the tv and talk about las vegas and all of a sudden the hotel business dies. i mean, the answer is that we need leadership, not criticism. we need encouragement not discouragement and until that scenario changes i think the united states is quote/unquote, i hate to use this word, in a malaise. >> is that a function of new laws and legislation or a function of rhetoric? >> first of all it's both, okay, in other words, we hope that it's new laws. the reality is, it isn't new l
. >> look whose talking is what bill clinton is talking about. talking point memo bill o'reilly discusses why like ability is so important and debates are going to be crucial for both candidates. >> there are two kinds of voters in america those who know what the issues are those who don't. for the uninformed casual voert emotion drives the decision and part of that equation is like ability. many historians belief ronald reagan defeated jimmy carter because he came across as likeable while carter was distant. same thing with clinton and the younger clinton had like ability. the younger remain personally popular until the resignificance kicked in. right now in a popularity poll president obama is ahead of mitt rom flee by 3 points according to a new fox news survey. after the debates that could change dramatically. romney and obama realize they must seem like the nice guy that's why they go on entertainment programs. they shouldn't be dealing with trivia but they do what they think they have to do. talking points understands that americans want their leaders to be accessible. they want to
are the republican nominee president george bush, the independent russ perot, and governor bill clinton, the democratic nominee. my name is carole simpson. and i will be the moderator for tonight's 90-minute debate. >> 90-minute debate, she says. that is carole simpson then. and here is carole simpson today. once again, the lady in red. carole simpson, amazing seeing you here, 20 years later, welcome. you know, all kinds of history made that night. you and i were talking on the commercial break, people recognizing you all around the world in the 20 years since. and it was unique about that night, the three debaters, not the usual two, you had, my goodness, questions from the audience, you had yourself, you're the first woman to host a presidential debate. just -- if i may, first question, perspectivewise, you presided over history, did you not? >> i did. and that was the most exciting -- it was the pinnacle of my career to be able to moderate a presidential debate that is like every reporter's dream in washington is to have that opportunity. so i was thrilled. and i don't like you talki
in the middle of an election campaign. bill clinton was comparing beijing to baghdad. this was at the time when china was moving from baghdad to paris. [laughter] maybe i am overstating the case, but that is what is happening. this was a dramatic shift in china and the u.s. government paid absolutely no attention to it. it had no impact on the policies of the clinton the administration when it took office. since i was the american ambassador, this confronted me with a problem of american government and had one view of china but china was already moving in a different direction and that created some contradictions in trying to carry out my instructions. this time, you have some echoes of that. clearly the bo xilai affair has shown that the political system is not that different for others. leaders have their own ambitions. some succeed and some come crashing down, as in the case of bo xilai. so we should not assume political jockeying is not taking place and this could explain why the announcement of the party congress was delayed. no longer do you have an all- powerful leader who can resolve di
-- bipartisan comment, best debate performance since bill clinton in 1992. mitt romney's done everything he needs to do. and the democrats know that. >>neil: a strong following. >> for business it is not a good invite. there is if reason for any businessman out there to want to grow his business, advance his business, hire more people. >> over the last four years, small business people have decided that america may not be the place to open a new business. >> the president is absolutely clear his proposal would cut $4 trillion in deficits. >> it is on a website, you can look at the numbers. what cuts we make. and what revenue we raise. >> look how all the debates were won and lost all the way going back to nixon and kennedy, often it was a good one liner that summed up someone. >> mr. president you are entitle custody your own airplane and house but not your own facts. >> he has been running for 18 months on the tax land now, five weeks before the election, he is saying that the big bold idea is, never mine. >> i didn't see a game changer. clearly, governor romney was the more aggressive and
with george h. w. bush and bill clinton. >> ross gave a good answer but i have to respond directly to mr. bush. you the question my patriotism. you even brought some white ring congressman out of the war white house to attack me. i honor your service in world war two. i honor mr. perot's service in uniform and every other man and woman who ever served. when joe mccarthy went around this country attacking people's patriotism, he was wrong. a senator from connecticut stood up to him named prescott bush, your father was right to stand up to joe mccarthy and you were wrong to attack my patriotism. i was opposed the war but i love my country and in need a president that will bring this country together and not divided. i want to bake a unified country. [applause] >> i did not question the man's patriotism, i questioned his judgment and character. what he did in moscow was fine and he explained it and i excepted. i don't accept organizing demonstrations and a foreign country when your country is at war. i'm sorry, i cannot accept that. >> all of that debate is on our video library at c-span.org. you
at his watch in a 1992 debate with bill clinton. >> i can't. >> reporter: texas governor rick perry's oops remark. >> oops. >> rick, i'll tell you what -- >> reporter: romney's high-dollar wager. >> $10,000 bet? >> reporter: and obama's comments to then-rival hillary clinton in 2008. >> you're not old enough to remember that. >> reporter: one thing analysts agree on, the debates may be romney's big chance. >> he's got two very tough competing goals, be likable and lay out a contrast. it's hard to be likable when you're the attack dog. >> we've gotten to know barack obama pretty well. we've seen this president for four years. there's not a lot of room left on his list to paint. mitt romney, he still has a little white space on his canvas. he can still show us who he is and where he'd lead us. >> reporter: the president spends the first part of the week in the battleground state of nevada, looking for debate prep with massachusetts senator john kerry who is playing mitt romney. governor romney will be in colorado, another swing state, where he'll be practicing with ohio senator rob po
to be there and are eager to make their case. bill clinton was like that. ronald reagan was like that. these two are not like that. for them, this is more, please do not let me do anything wrong, than, what can i do right? as was discussed earlier, he needs a dramatic moment to shift the momentum. if he is intimidated by the experience or feeling boxed in, he is less likely to do that. for obama, it is more a question for maintaining his lead. he does not want to do anything right now that reverses the trajectory he is on. i would expect he is a literate -- a little timid as well. >> if you look at past debates, one dealing with policy, the d, the with gerald forwar other is more style, where obama made a joke about his age. how much is policy and how much a style in these debates? >> i think probably my judgment would be a lot of the stylistic -- a lot of it is stylistic. it is the way they come across to the voters. it is not necessarily as much what they are saying as how they are saying it. every once in awhile, it is itchly more of a case of glti avoidance. to do with lot with their handler
of the main reasons record surpluses under bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. we are not going to let this country fall backward, not now, not with so much at stake. we have got to move forward. we need to invest in small business, and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train 2 million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. we need to -- we need to cut our oil imports in half, create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work, doing me nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. that's how you keep moving forward. that is the choice in this election and that's wh
congressman. and pat caddell, former pollster for jimmy carter. and doug schoen former pollster for bill clinton. doug, the numbers you saw on the screen, since the conventions, the president has gained four and romney has lost two, a swing of six points. >> that is where the race is. there are some polls in the swing states showing outsize leaps for obama the ink they are over sampling democrats and the mainstream media is away from what the race is. that is, a close contest. the president is about 48 or 49 percent approval and vote share. the governor's campaign has lost support. he is down around 43 percent. the 47 percent combined with the drift in the campaign has reduced his vote share, but it is still a a race, and the debate will be critical. >>gregg: this poll shows president obama at 49 and 44 and that can chain instantly. some of the media have written governor romney's obituary, this is premature. >> the media polls, the mainstream media uses the state polls like the new form of negative advertising. other negative campaigning against romney. the news organizations that are b
it exactly the way he and bill clinton have been framing this race by saying it's not about the last four years, it's a choice about the next four years. take a listen to the early part of the debate and how the president framed it. >> the question here tonight is not where we've been, but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy and rollback regulations that we'll be better off. i've got a different view. i think we've got to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure that we are helping small businesses and companies that are investing here in the united states. >> reporter: what we saw after the president framed that way, though, framed it that way is that mitt romney punched back and said, wait a second you've been president for four years, why haven't you done some of that. it didn't appear that the president had been challenged in that kind of a direct way in a longtime and didn't really counter punch on thos
, he was leading george w. bush and bill clinton. he was pushing 40% in the polls. he could have won the election. he could have entered the white house. people felt that they voted for him and he had that much support, they would not be wasting their votes. he dropped out of the race. he did not have the temperament to deal with all the issues, the reporters, the personalities involved. he dropped out of the race and his poll numbers dropped 7% and when it comes back in in october, he was in the tv debates in ends up with about 20% of the vote. ross perot had a chance to really change politics and change the country back in 1992. for personal reasons, he went back to dallas. it is fine for him to complain about what's going on now but he had a chance to really make a contribution and he dropped out of the race. host: would you comment on the history of voter suppression as it affects third parties as well as the two parties? guest: well, getting on the ballot has been the big problem. that is a form of suppression, i think. then there is the issue of people being afraid if they vote
is the question i would like, mitt romney, how would you -- if bill clinton couldn't have turned this economy around in four years, even he couldn't turn it around in four years what, could you have done to turn it around in four years? see if he comes back with specifics or if he comes back with rhetoric. can mitt romney comment on why he has offshore accounts? can mitt romney thoroughly and adequately explain the 47% comment which has been used for the other side in ads and can he expand on his math on the economy? if he can do that in a way in which we can all understand without generality, i think he could have momentum. if not, then president obama -- >> steve: they've been working on the lines, first in vermont and now out in colorado as well. it's interesting, though, to hear how people on the left and the white house have been down playing the president's performance. >> brian: you think so? >> steve: just a little bit. remember over the last four, five years, we've been told barak obama brack, one of the whyest political speakers of all time, now we're expected to believe he's going
on the campaign trail. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and that ryan supported. as bill clinton said, all they're suggesting now when he's asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. that's what this is. >> as you might have guessed, republicans seized on the comments with biden's rival, wisconsin congressman paul ryan saying the vice president seemed to have taken a page out of the republican nominee's playbook. >> he was taking my speech, you know what, we agree. the middle class has been buried over the last four years, they're being buried by obama care, being buried by borrowing, by taxes, by spending, by more regulations, by all the uncertainties that is plaguing business and the way to fix this is by electing mitt romney. >> a debate is scheduled for october 11th. >>> a brutal week for american airlines. flight 1862 left dallas for st. louis yesterday, only to return due to landing gear problems. passengers say people were crying when the flight crew told them to prepare for an eme
out of the convention and bill clinton's famous speech? >> you need a story to change if you are mitt romney. he is primed for a comeback moment. what happens next is going to be important. how does he follow up on this. he's giving a speech on foreign policy. going to be asked about this in interviews. if he can build on momentum a little. yes expect that he begins to close the gap. positive signs in battleground states. so the romney campaign just happened at the right moment for them to capitalize on something. knowing you have five weeks left, knowing that there's still a couple turns left. >> i can't believe, well, we have 33 days left. five weeks and counting. >> coming soon. >>> celebrity cat fights are nothing new. >>> celebrity cat fights are nothing new. a new one involving a well-known tv actor and famous rock 'n' roller. >> abc's nick watt reports the fight is over a fallen tree. ♪ despite all my rage >> reporter: living next to smashing pumpkins billy corgan noise would have to be your major complaint. apparently not. it's trees. smashing into your house. eric dane, tha
so it is fair, so that incomes over $250,000 will go back to the rate when bill clinton was president, that created the biggest surplus in history. last night romney ruled out raising a dollar of taxes on anybody, closing out the loophole that is $4 billion in corporate welfare, refused to acknowledge the loophole that gives tax breaks to corporations that ship jobs overseas, and when he was asked what he would do to cut the deficit, said he would eliminate funding for public television. that was his answer. thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. it is about time. we did not know that big bird was driving the federal deficit, but that is what we heard last night. how about that? elmo, too? look, the fact is governor romney's numbers do not add up. i had to spend time last night trying to pin it down. the only way to pay for $5 trillion in the tax cuts and $2 trillion in the defense spending that the military says it does not need is by asking the middle-class to pay more. i refuse to do that. i refuse to ask middle-class families to give up their deductions for
bill clinton, which was just under 40%. the president would like to have the maximum rate federal level be 39 something percent. unfortunately what he doesn't tell you is currently with obamacare, what is it, another 3 or 4% is tagged on to it? so your federal tax burden is actually north of 40% if you're lucky enough to be in the highest tax bracket. >> brian: let me tell what you else is happening in the news. jim lehrer is speaking out for the first time since the debate. he is responding to critics who said he did not do enough to control the candidates. he said he did exactly what a moderator should do. quote, i thought the format accomplished its purpose, which was to facilitate direct, extended exchanges between the candidates about the issues of substance. part of my moderation was to stay out of the way of the flow and i had no problems doing so. he said he got frustrated because halfway in he realized this was not long enough that we should have gone on longer. >> steve: although after 65 minutes, the president had spoken five minutes longer than mitt romney. mr. lehrer allowe
